I am totally feeling the Christmas spirit. Quite clearly. Haha. My family this year are going back and forth between a regular "dress up" day (wearing mostly dresses and black tie type clothes) or a more fun "vintage" dress up....

Happy Wednesday to everyone reading! We are nearing the end of the first week of December and Christmas is drawing closer. I find that December really seems to fly by. A lot of that has to do with the fact that people are...

During our middle-school and high-school years, my siblings and I received Avon cologne from our grandmother as Christmas gifts. My grandmother, when she was up in years, found it easier to order cologne for my sister, brother,...

ruth roberts Yes some fragrances could be quite smelly but some were quite nice. I also used to have the 1960s bottles - all collectable now. I have two dark green ones that come out every Christmas - one is in the shape of a candle and the other is a boot. I wish Avon...

So my tree is going up this evening, a bit early but I am feeling festive. I probably won't attempt to decorate the whole house this year, but it wouldn't seem right without a tree at least. Do you decorate for Christmas? and if...

No, not me - a line from the lyrics of a zany song, "Birdhouse in your Soul", by the band "They Might Be Giants". It's a pretty upbeat song, great for a listen if things are getting you down - I have added a link to a version of...

Perhaps it's just me. Maybe I've reached the Age of Bah! Humbug! The Christmas Vibe hasn't caught me yet. I have no Christmas Mojo. Oompf has popped out to play and he's left his Christmas jumper tucked up in the drawer. The...

I attended the monthly service in the mother church. I had a chance to explore the mall. The mall is called Victory Mall located in Caloocan. While looking around for an ATM, a Christmas decor showed up! It is very timely...

You cannot choose your family , but you can choose your friends - so what kind of friends do you choose? Like in the trio pictured above , some choose friends who basically look and dress the same way as they do, while others...

ruth roberts Don't think I'd want to be friends with the rich and famous - unless I actually liked the person anyway. Don't think I have ever actively chosen a friend - my friendships just tend to develop naturally - form shared circumstances or interests. I think that...

I know a couple who live near me and I often speak to both of them as I pass their house. While talking to the husband the other day, I could not help noticing that he was not wearing his wedding ring . On closer inspection, I...

ruth roberts Well I always used to wear my wedding ring on the 'wrong' hand as a matter of principle as I did not like being dictated to by convention. Now I never bother wearing it unless going somewhere special - I prefer not to wear rings most of the time and to me it...
